Graham Gerritsen earned his law degree from the University of Texas School of Law in 2013. Aside from his three years in Austin he has lived in Boulder all his life; he earned bachelor’s in Economics at CU-Boulder in 2009, graduating both cum laude and with distinction, and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.
Gerritsen wasted no time returning to Colorado after law school and spent his early legal career as the in-house attorney for a publicly-traded microcap in Boulder, advising on a wide range of corporate, commercial, and employment matters, including corporate finance, securities regulation compliance, and general business advice. He also has experience negotiating commercial and residential leases and regularly counsels clients regarding prospective litigation (usually with an emphasis on avoiding it). His practice continues to focus on advising small and growing businesses as well as handling real estate matters.
Gerritsen is active in both the Colorado Bar Association and the Boulder County Bar Association; he currently serves as chair of the CBA’s Cannabis Law Committee and is the articles editor for the Colorado Lawyer’s cannabis law content. When not practicing law, he enjoys traveling, trying new foods, and being outdoors.
